Episode 130-We have thoughts… If we had a dollar for every time this show was an emotional roller coaster, we’d have lots of dollars. The life of a person is full of ups and downs, and being an automotive enthusiast certainly greases the tracks (mainly with oil from cracked VW oil pans), often times accelerating our vacillation between the two… Read more →
129-Ian Chokes Dave, But Not Like In A Hot Way Or Anything, And Dave Contextualizes Ian’s Car, But Not Like In A Hot Way Or Anything.
Episode 129-Urus Urus. If you make it to the end of the show, you’ll probably never hear the name of the weird Lamborghini SUV without it being coupled by a spine-tingling shiver and part of your soul (if you have one…Dave) giving up and leaving. So yeah, besides spoiling Lambo names, Ian makes Dave say uncle. And by uncle, we… Read more →
Episode 128-Cliffhanger!!! Look, we have a bit of an inverse Midas touch. We worked hard to line up an interview with one of the best voices in automotive journalism, Alanis King. The very next day with our interview stored safely away, F1 announced that they were no longer going to use Grid Girls. Sigh. It would have been nice to… Read more →
127-Ian Hits Things With A Hammer, Dave Almost Gets Kicked Out Of A Lexus, And We Change Our Metaphorical Socks.
Episode 127-Soft IT Hands Sometimes life requires a delicate touch. Unfortunately, this is not one of those moments, so we have to buck up and put our soft IT hands through their paces. It’s not all manual labor, bruised knuckles, and sweaty brows, thankfully. There are some fresh feelings: pulling on a new pair of socks, the catharsis of beating… Read more →
From time to time on our show, we document things we observe as car enthusiasts. Often they’re things to which normal humans wouldn’t give a second thought, but torment us for some reason. “Carstanza” is my favorite example. When a car owner badges their car up (think Type R badges on a Civic DX), they’re committing themselves to a lie… Read more →
Episode 126- Cats, Hell and otherwise. Let’s have a construction discussion. Well, we did, and we do, and we need to continue to do so. Similar to seeing an entertainment center for what it is, a composition of bolts, wood, and glue, we see the automotive landscape for what it is. People, cars, personalities, unity as well as its fair… Read more →
125-Dave And Ian Surprise Each Other And We Fly Too Close To The Parts Desk On Wings Of Wax. And Fuses.
Episode 125 – Kids Icarus In the psychological realm the term projection is used to describe a scenario in which you interpret someone’s emotions or actions in a way that describes something that you are truly feeling yourself. In this week’s show, we blatantly use a random Audi vanity plate as inspiration for a new automotive term. Are we correct?… Read more →
Episode 124-Ford STs and soap for men. People far smarter than us often exclaim that history is doomed to repeat itself unless we learn from it. What can we learn from our cars? Perhaps that like socks, they’re best changed often. Sticking to the same pair for years could only end in disappointment and shattered emotions? Let’s pick up the… Read more →
123-Dave Taps Out Of The Grand Tour, Ian Figures Out The BEST Autonomous Car Uses, And We Discuss The Clarkson Problem
Episode 123-Stickers and self-loathing What can we be doing as automotive enthusiasts to make our community more accessible? Unfortunately, there is no shortage of answers and on this episode we talk about things we’d like to hear less of and things we’d like to hear more of. On the lighter side, if you’re in Denver on January 14th, you should… Read more →
Anyone who has been paying attention to new cars lately has noticed a weird trend in design: the floating roof. Or, more specifically, a blacked out c or d pillar (the vertical piece closest to the back of the car). Well, yesterday, I was driving along when I saw a new Lexus RX: See that blacked-out area under the roof… Read more →
